Baby blanket?  …or a nice print for the wall of his room, or a mobile?  A stuffed animal is a good idea too.  The only thing is that it’s really hard to predict which stuffed animal a kid will become attached to as he grows up.  Some they end up loving, and some they just cast aside.

I’ve given a few items off of Red Envelope that family/friends have loved. A lot of items can be personalized too. Congrats on becoming an Auntie!

You know how babys/kids sometimes have an animal/blanket?  My friend got one with her daughters name embroidered on it.  Actually she got two, one as a back up.  They are already having their daughter sleep with it in hopes that will be the security blanket. 

Something like some of these:

I know this isn’t very sentimental but you can always look at a series EE bond. 

In florida, if you buy a kid a lifetime fishing/hunting license its really cheap.  I know thats a gift my friend was going to get his nephew.

I plan on getting my Maid/Matron of Honor a hand-stamped baby spoon from Lisa Leonard (see here).  I know I’d personally cherish a gift like that later on.

We didn’t get any classic or long term things for our daughter, and somehow I think these things are more cherished, saved and passed down.

I know I have a silver Tiffany rattle and a gold baby bracelet that I received when I was born that I still have.  Ceci didn’t get anything like that, but I’ll give her the keepsakes that I got when I was born. (She’ll never wear the bracelet– it’s a hazard!)
